Under the laws in Florida, hit and run can be a very serious crime with very substantial penalties, depending on what happened in the accident. If you need to defend yourself in criminal court from a hit and run charge, you need to be sure that you are being represented by a skilled defense attorney with experience fighting hit and run cases. Your future and your freedom can depend on it
If you are involved in an accident with property damage or personal injury, you were in a very stressful situation. Anyone who has been in an accident knows the adrenaline rush that follows. Immediately following an accident you may not be thinking clearly and may make bad decisions. If you had a moment of panic and failed to stop after an accident, we understand how that can happen.
You also may be accused when you did nothing wrong. Cases of mistaken identification do happen in Florida hit and run cases.
Maybe the accident wasn’t that serious and you didn’t know you had to stop. Perhaps the other car was empty and you were unsure of your responsibilities. Although not knowing the law is not a defense to breaking it, it may help explain your side to the court.
Everyone makes mistakes. Whatever your situation, Attorney Albert M. Quirantes is here on your side to make sure you are protected and treated fairly when up against the Florida legal system.
